The carving is absolutely beautiful and is also where they show the laser show. In the memorial hall they show a short video about the carving, how it was done and who was involved in the carvings. It's very interesting and wow what a history. You will love it!!

Surprisingly quite large as compared to the one in mount Rushmore. All granite depicting the civil war heroes, President Jefferson Davis, Generals Robert Lee & Stone wall Jackson.

The carving is pretty neat. It is big and impressive that they were able to do it. Worth a gander. It is one of the largest reliefs in the world. You can view it for free from the lawn area, just the parking fee gets you in to see it.

Make sure you stop in the museum and watch the movie, very interesting and informative before you go up and see the mountain.

This is a great park with lots to do!! Don't miss the laser show in the evening! We went just for the laser show and it only cost $15 for parking! They allow coolers, chairs and food in the park, so we had a picnic. It was a fun experience.

The carving is amazing! The park is beautiful and abundant with facts and history! We enjoyed walking to the top, although it was quite exhausting! Take water!!!

Of historical significance, at least. Stone Mountain Park offers a number of attractions, museums and activities that are well worth visiting. Much of it may be oriented toward the Civil War, but, hey, that's the history of this place.

The art is good. The main idea should change with the times. The carving should change with the times.

You have to see once. We took the scenic railroad for good up close viewing. The relief is clear and crisp.

Hard to believe someone had the vision and manpower to accomplish this. Great to see. Museum is full of information about it. Well worth the time and money to see and explore.
